The Third Photo From the Vintage Key Chain Photo Viewers - Crecenciana and the Snarling Dog

In a previous post, I shared the second photo from one of the photo viewers that were found in the pretty vintage box I found at my Mom's house. Today I'm sharing the third, and last, photo with you today.

This photo was also taken using my cell phone. I held the photo viewer up to the light and then put my cell phone camera lens next to the viewer as if I were holding it up to my eye. I then took a photo of what my cell phone saw.

It looks like this is also a photo of my maternal great-grandaunt, Creceniana Aurora Matus Villatoro. In each of the three pictures from these vintage photo viewers, Crecenciana was accompanied by a dog. She loved dogs, according to my mom. I think Crecenciana was with the same dog in each photo. In the first two photos the dog looked calm, but in this photo the dog looks like it was snarling at something or somebody.


Wow! It looks rather vicious, doesn't it? I wonder what was going on and why it was acting this way.

Here are the first two photos for comparison. See how calm the dogs looked? Do they look like the same dog to you in all of the photos?



Besides the snarling dog in the photo at the top of this post, do you see anything else of interest in the photo? I noticed the two people walking across the street near the top of the photo. I thought that was interesting. It looks like they are both holding umbrellas. I don't see any rain, so I'm assuming they are trying to shield themselves from the sun. Perhaps it was a hot summer day there.

As with the other photos, I don't know when or where these were taken. But, it's quite likely they were taken in Brazil since Crecenciana immigrated to Brazil from Mexico.

Well, that's it for the vintage photo viewers. There were only three of them in the pretty vintage box. But, there are lots of loose photos to share with you in upcoming posts.

Thanks for stopping by!

The Second Photo From the Vintage Key Chain Photo Viewers - Crecenciana Aurora Matus Villatoro

In a previous post I shared a photo from one of the photo viewers that were found in the pretty vintage box I found at my Mom's house. In that post I told you I'd share the second of three photos in an upcoming post. Today is the day I'm sharing the second photo with you.

Just like the first photo, this second photo also looks to me like it's a photo of Crecenciana Aurora Matus Villatoro, my maternal great-grandaunt.


This photo was taken using my cell phone. I held the photo viewer up to the light and then put my cell phone camera lens next to the viewer as if I were holding it up to my eye. I then took a photo of what my cell phone saw.

I tried to scan this small photo on my flat bed scanner, but it didn't work out well. It looks much better using my cell phone camera.

If you look closely at the photo, there is a man looking through the window at the right above Crecenciana. I wonder who that is. Could it be her husband, Theodor Reinacher?

Again, I don't know when or where this photo was taken. But, I wouldn't be surprised if it was taken in Brazil. Crecenciana immigrated to Brazil from Mexico. The dog in this photo looks like the same dog in the previous photo I shared.

I'll share the third photo viewer picture in an upcoming post.

Thanks for stopping by!

Even More Joyful Times ~ Adding Another New Daughter-in-Law's Name to My Genealogy Database

I'm playing catch up with this post, because I should have shared this happy and exciting news last year. But, it's been a very busy time around here since last November.

What I'm happily and finally sharing with you today is the news that our oldest son and his beautiful bride were married on November 11, 2017 in Oakland, California. Here are some photos from their special day.





Our son and his sweet fiance (now wife) were married in the Oakland California Temple. They were sealed for time and all eternity. Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints believe that marriages performed in the holy temple can last throughout the eternities and not end at death.

It was a beautiful day for their wedding.




I added our sweet new daughter-in-law's name to my Legacy Family Tree database last year. What a joy that was! We are so happy she has joined our family!

Thanks for stopping by!
